12/15/2018Aberdeen CBCAberdeen Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday December 15th. Plan on meeting at the north side McDonalds around 7:30 and we'll see how many folks we have, create teams and get an assigned area. Plan on trying to get on the road by 8:00. Folks who are planning to join in please contact me by the 12th or so. I can get a head count and start making plans to see how many teams we can get, and about how much of the circle we can cover. IF there would be a need because of weather to reschedule that date would be determined late

12/15/2018Sturgis Christmas Bird CountThe Sturgis Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 with an alternate bad weather date of December 20. Participants will meet 7:30 AM at McDonald's in Sturgis on 12/15. In the event unsafe weather requires use of the alternate date, I will post an announcement on Yahoo no later than 8 PM on December 14th. Forms for the count will be passed out at McDonalds on count day and electronic reporting will also be used whenever possible. New birders are welcome. Please let me know if you plan to participate if we haven’t already communicated. Count week is three days before or after count day. Species not seen on count day, but seen from December 12-18 are count week sightings. There will be a potluck at 12067 Crook City Rd, Whitewood SD following the count. We will be serving white chili (made with chicken), tea-coffee-punch, and provide all serving items. If possible, please bring a side dish such as bread, snacks, salad, desert, etc. We plan to be home around 3:30 PM, so come over any time after you finish your territory. Let me know if you need directions to our house. The Whitewood Parade of Lights is not a conflict this year as it is on 12/22.
